Obedience Trial Entry Limits

You can enter one obedience event per day regardless of how many conformation shows you are entered in. However, entering all breed and specialty shows will tend to cause more stress for your dog that will prevent him/her from performing at their best in the obedience trial.

There is no age limit for entering dogs in obedience events but dogs must be at least two weeks old. Dogs sent to the Retirement Couch may still compete in obedience events.
